The GRAVITATE  project addresses the world of Cultural Heritage and related science. The innovative aspect of the project is to create a digital platform that allows  Re-Unification, Re-Association and Re-Assembly of heritage artifacts, based on 3D geometryshape analysiscolour featuressemantic metadata and natural language processing. The integration of these approaches into a single decision support platform, with a full suite of visualisation tools provides a unique resource for the cultural heritage research community.

The aim of the project is to support scientists to Re-Assemble fragmented and broken heritage artifacts, identify and Re-Unify parts that were separated across collections and to recognise and Re-Associate cultural heritage artifacts that have common features, allowing new knowledge and understanding of past societies to be inferred.
